A little superhero

Hello crafters! Well it’s a rainy day here in NY so I decided to do some watercoloring. I colored this super cute stamp of a little boy and his dog by A Random Fan stamp(underwear hero)
I just started using watercolor pencils so I still have lots of practicing to do.
I decided to try out a shaker card using some sequins. It was pretty fun to do and will probably make a few more. I think they are perfect for kids cards. I asked my son and nephew what they thought of the card and they liked it so that’s good right!
The sequins can be purchased at my shop and unfortunately I sold out of this stamp. I also used some green twinkle sweet dots on the card which is avail in the shop. Keep a look out if I do decide to get the stamps back in stock.

“Technique” VSC Challenge #22

Good morning crafters!!! Time for another fun VSC challenge for the month. For the month of April we are showing you our favorite techniques. My problem is that I don’t just have one, I have a few but the main technique that I will talk about today is watercoloring. Recently Nicole of Sweet Designzz sent me my first set of watercolor pencils. She is such an awesome friend always thinking of others. Thanks Nicole!!! I couldn’t wait to get started. I had to do a bit of research first and also purchase some watercolor paper. I bought a small pad of paper at michaels which came with 10 sheets for like $3 bucks. It wasn’t one of the heaviest paper but it was ok. Next I had to find out what was the best type of ink to use for my stamp but unfortunately I only had momento black ink. Even though it was a fast drying ink it took a few minutes to completely dry. The best to use are ones that are fast drying and also meant for watercoloring. On the back of the ink it will say that It can be used for watercoloring like versamark fine ink.
I have taken a few photos of the process

Just like you would color with copics I did the same with the pencils and used two different colors close in color family

I’m so excited about these beautiful sets and I have some cards I made using the dots. The first card I used our new Gold and Silver glitter set. I used the mini size as rain drops and I really love how this came out. The image is from Some Odd Girls (Brella Fairy). For the second card I used a blue glitter dot from our glitter set and a mustard yellow and cherry red from our poppy set. I love how the dots matched the colors of the image. The camera is a stamp from Lawn Fawns new stamp set “#awesome which is available in my shop. I also used the “Say cheese stamp set and cut for the Polaroid.

New C.C. Design stamps and more

Good afternoon crafters! Today I want to share with you a sweet card I made using one of the new C.C.Design stamps available in the shop. I used Lucy with a cross to make this precious Easter card. When I first saw this stamp I just fell in love with it and couldn’t wait to color her in. I used my copic markers to color her in and added some glossy accents to the cross. I used a pink polka dot paper for the background from stampin up and bazzill white cardstock as the base. I also embellished the card with some wine colored washi tape(avail in the shop) and some paper flowers. For the cloud background I used the Bev Rochester cloud template with stampin up bashful blue ink.
